The lives of the Powell family are forever changed as Lionsgate debuts the supernatural adventure-drama No Ordinary Family: The Complete First Season to DVD this September. No stranger to superhuman abilities, Emmy® winner Michael Chiklis (Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, TV’s “The Shield,” 2002) stars as patriarch of the Powells, a family that gets the surprise of a lifetime after their plane crashes in the Amazon. Joining Chiklis as his workaholic wife is Julie Benz (Showtime’s “Dexter”), as well as Kay Panabaker (TV’s “CSI”) and Jimmy Bennett (Star Trek) as the couple’s two teenage children. From executive producer Greg Berlanti (Green Lantern, TV’s “Brothers and Sisters,”) the series, which premiered to more than ten million viewers in September 2010, also co-stars Stephen Collins (TV’s “7th Heaven”) and Romany Malco (Showtime’s “Weeds”). Complete with all 20 episodes on four discs, No Ordinary Family: The Complete First Season will be available on September 6th for the suggested retail price of $29.98.
After 16 years of marriage, Jim Powell (Chiklis) looks to reconnect with his busy family while joining his wife Stephanie (Benz) on a business trip to South America. But when their plane crash-lands in the Amazon River, they realize that they will never be quite the same. Literally. Soon after the incident, each family member shows signs of developing their own unique superhuman ability. Will these newfound powers finally reunite the family or pull them further apart?
